I never wanted one of the so-called No-Nose dolls until recently. When this little chap turned up at Sasha Doll UK, I just couldn't resist him and he has been languishing there on Lay-away for some time. So a big thank you to who ever his previous doll parent was and to everybody else, may I introduce you to Bertie? ( photo from Sasha Doll UK, with thanks to Shelly)
He arrived with the usual 'bed-head' look of the early Gotz boys but a little shampoo and hair dried whilst wearing one of the wonderfully elastic Dolly Doodles hats has tamed it somewhat.
Feeling clean and reasonably tidy, he announced that, Otto, the name we had planned to give him, had nothing to do with him. He went on to tell DH that, though named Albert, he expected his new family to call him Bertie - or at least, that is what I have been told by DH, though this could be a little husbandly manipulation.
I'm smitten now and Bertie may require me to save up to buy him a sibling. Who
Bertie wishes to make it clear that he does have a nose, a perfectly proportioned, small boy's nose. He does not wish to hear the term No-Nose used about him ever again.
Strong willed little fella, isn't he?!
